Each year, the Office of Service-Learning sets priority areas to support campus-wide collaboration, community engagement, and interdisciplinary service-learning. Each “engagement hub” has one or more lead faculty members who help focus efforts, foster communication, and convene interested collaborators and community partners.
In past years, these hubs have led to development of new coursework, successful funding of initiatives with federal grants, and innovative development of multi-disciplinary partnerships. AmeriCorps VISTAs also help with many of these initiatives.
OSL Engagement Hubs have included:
- Senior Hunger Coalition
- K-12 Service-Learning
- Service-Learning with Latino Communities
- Community Food and Gardens (both UGarden and the Community Garden Network)
- Experience UGA
